  • The market is well organized and has a good variety of things to eat, buy and look. The second floor could be better explored, though, has nice views and some atractions/shops. It was a rainy day, so ...  read more »
  • For those who have been to Vancouver and visited Granville Island, you know what a great place that is to wander, shop and eat. Covent Market isn't at that level, but it's a pretty nice place to hang ...  read more »
  • I love the selection of fresh produce from different vendors. Both butchers offer an excellent selection of meats. The bakery by the King St doors has the best thick sliced white bread that I have ever had. I love the food from The Coop, New Delhi Deli, Waldo's and The Red Rooster.
  • Lovely market. I went to the Tea Haus on the second floor and boy were they well stocked (they had four different sencha teas)! I also love the overall feel of the place. My only complaint would be that for some reason I couldn't access the onsite supposedly free wifi.
  • Awesome market, Very clean, most of all, vendors and their prices are very relevent ... mist are on par withe the nex guy or gal who has a similar type of stand ... so really this place is all about finding the merchant who you like and feel more aquainted too. Who is more closer to your likes in particulars, ie. favourite sports team, a family who may run the rented area that may have similarities with where they may hail from, for instance, Italian, where you may also be Italian so you can utilize your language's in your exchanges in verbal communications. Plus a lot more factors go into thw why, of how someone takes that mental note on which vendors they must get around to and then possibly browse around. This is really a great Market which is much newer and a toral rebuild compared to the original Covent Garden Market. I remember way back (mid - late 80s when Covent Garden Market was locared on the same parcel of land that the awesome new one now stands ... abd has fIr quite some time now, yet I remmember such a different style and layout to the Market) This was when Mac was the Parrot was all the rage and a great way to start off your Market buying adventures ... This parrot was basically the onmy reason why I always would be the first kid to hop in our family vehicle. Mission being London East, where some classic stores still could be found before headed on a course of due west to head straight into the heart of what was a alright economic zone and wasn't such a drab place. The downtown of my youth seemed happy and vibrant ... my perception of these areas could be skewed though, thus by the end if the 80s I had only been 9 ... Downtown to me and obviously some family members as well as friends of the family would shop in these areas as well. However by the mid 90s travelling to these areas of town had basically all but ceased ... exept for goung to the market every now and again. London East by the Police Station is all second hand, used goods shops, with payday advancements on all corners., all vying for a piece of every customer they can take √°way from the other Companies Lambasted / Big Yellow Signages' enticing people with Cash / Payday Loans. The heart of our Forest City has hardly any real foliage as Metal Florescent Coulter Trees seem to give way and Sprout Up, even from a plate where a tree may have been living happily However Metal Coloured Florescent Trees that require the odd touch-up of possible damage to the street art that is now all over the core. Hey I guess watering the real trees would cost much more then the gallon of paint that may be good for a few years of coatings the 5 'Flourescent Couled Trees' that may be all very light blye but in the colours of 'Spandex Shorts' peoples use to wear in the late 80s.
  • A lot of people go here for lunch and because of that there is a massive patio out front are people too eat and socialize on when the weather is nice out. They could probably use a few more umbrellas out there but besides that, it's quite relaxing. Market itself has nice small businesses and a lot of great unique food for everyone to try. Prepare to bring a chunk of change to try it out though.
  • Delightful market for London, a broad selection of baked goods, fresh produce, meats and cheeses along with restaurants, food vendors and two coffee shops (especially Hasbeans who are a London micro roaster founded in 1969). Open year round with on site parking.
